An Understated Dominance Chapter 1501 by Marina Vittori

Amidst the chaos, a sharp slap rang out, catching everyone by surprise. Julie, who had been making a scene just moments ago, now lay on the ground, bewildered and disoriented.

The crowd gasped, looking at the scene; their eyes widened in shock. No one expected Dustin to be so bold, daring to lay hands on someone associated with the Moseys.

The key thing was that Julie got that gold badge from the Moseys, proof of her high status. For Dustin to slap her was the same as offending Seamus. Was this guy out of his mind?

“Y-You really dare to hit me?” Julie clutched her cheek. Her face was a mix of shock, confusion, and disbelief.

Ever since she joined the Moseys’ circle of influence, she quickly climbed the social ladder. Soon, she became the popular one everyone looked up to. They went along with her, praised her, and did not dare to say anything harsh.

However, Dustin dared to slap her in public. What was wrong with this bastard? He was extremely bold to disregard the rules!

“What’s wrong with hitting you? You were causing a scene and being completely unreasonable. It had to be done,” Dustin stated matter-of-factly.

“Rhys! I’m with the Moseys!” Julie retorted. Without a word, Dustin delivered another resounding slap, causing Julie’s nose to bleed. “With people like you, the Moseys are truly unfortunate!”

“Bastard! How dare you hit me? You’ve done it now! I’ll make you pay!” Julie roared, grabbing her phone to make a call.

“Julie, if I were you, I wouldn’t make that call,” Dustin calmly advised.

“What? Scared now? Why didn’t you think of that earlier?” Julie snapped. “Rhys, even if you kneel and beg for mercy now, I won’t let you off easily! Just wait for your demise!”

“Am I scared? Scared of your false sense of power or your reliance on others?” Dustin chuckled.

“Julie, have you considered how you’ll explain about the stolen badge when reinforcements from the Moseys arrive?

At this, Julie froze, her fingers hovering over the phone. “Rhys! Stop spouting nonsense! Do you think I’d fall for your tricks?”

“Whether you believe it or not, you know the truth,” Dustin said.

“Stealing the Moseys ‘s gold badge is no small crime. Even if Dahlia forgives you, the Moseys won’t take it lightly.

“If this blows up, they’ll likely use you as an example. Imagine your fate, then. I don’t need to spell it out, do I?”

“Y-You’re just trying to scare me! I won’t fall for it! Stop fucking around!” Julie insisted.

“If you don’t believe me, go ahead and make that call. Let’s see who ends up in trouble,” Dustin said emotionlessly. Watching him, Julie suddenly felt uneasy.

Holding the phone in midair, she was hesitant to make the call, realizing that stealing the Moseys’ gold badge was a grave offense.

While Dahlia might let it slide, the Moseys might not. If Seamus caught wind of it, even her connection as Dahlia’s cousin might not be enough to protect her. The risk was too great.

Summary An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori

Dahlia Nicholson and Dustin Rhys had been married for three years. After Dahlia’s meteoric rise to success, she abandons the useless dead weight that’s Dustin, proposing divorce. Unbeknownst to her, everything she had ever achieved was only because of him.

Chapter 1 “Dustin, here is the divorce agreement prepared by Ms. Nicholson. All you need to do is sign them.” In the president’s office of the Quine Group, the secretary, Lyra Blaine, placed a piece of A4 paper on the table. A man sat opposite her, dressed in plain clothing. “Divorce? What do you mean?” Dustin Rhys was taken aback. “Do you not understand what I’m saying? Your marriage with Ms. Nicholson is over. You’re not even on the same level anymore. Your existence is nothing but a smear on the president’s reputation!” Lyra pulled no punches as she spoke. “A smear on her reputation?” Dustin frowned. “Is that how she thinks of me?” Back when they first got married, the Nicholson family was in ruinous debt. He was the one who helped them when they were at their lowest point. Now that they were rich, Dahlia Nicholson was ready to just kick him out. “Something like that.” Lyra jerked her chin toward the magazine on the table. A photo of a beautiful woman was printed on the front page. “Look at the headline on this magazine, Dustin. Ms. Nicholson’s net worth has hit one billion in the course of just three years, a feat no short of a miracle. She’s now the most desired woman in Swinton! With all this, she’s destined for greatness. But you, you’re just a regular joe. You don’t deserve her at all. I hope that you’ll see some sense and do the right thing.” When Dustin remained silent, Lyra frowned. “I know you’re not happy with this, but this is reality,” she continued. “You might have helped Ms. Nicholson when she was in trouble, but she has repaid you for everything you’ve done for her over the last three years. In fact, you’re the one who owes her now!” “Is our marriage just a business deal to her, then?” Dustin took a deep breath to suppress the emotions within. “If she wants to divorce me, let her speak to me herself.” “Ms. Nicholson is very busy. She doesn’t need to trouble herself with such trifling matters.” “Trifling matters?” Dustin was stunned. Then he laughed bitterly. “Is that so? Is divorce a trifling matter to her? She can’t even find the time to speak to me. Truly, she’s that unattainable now!” “Dustin, don’t delay this any longer.” Lyra pushed the divorce agreement toward him again. “Just sign here and you’ll get a car and a house as compensation. On top of that, you’ll also get eight million dollars. This is more than what you’ll be able to earn in your lifetime!” “Eight million dollars is a lot, but…I don’t need it. I will sign the divorce papers if she comes personally. Otherwise, I won’t sign anything,” Duston said coldly. “Don’t go too far, Dustin!” Lyra slammed her hand on the table. “Don’t say I didn’t warn you. With all her power and resources, Ms. Nicholson can divorce you easily. It’s only because she appreciates her past relationship with you that she’s allowing you to keep your dignity intact. Don’t provoke her!” “My dignity?” Dustin was a little amused by that. She didn’t even want to speak to him directly to divorce him. What kind of dignity was that? Moreover, if she really did appreciate their relationship, then why was she threatening him now?
